Russia, Turkey & Iran condemn US recognition of Israeli sovereignty over Golan Heights

The guarantor states of the Astana process declared their intention to counter separatist plans against Syria this country, according to the joint statement of Russia, Iran and Turkey. It was released on Friday after a regular round of negotiations in Nur-Sultan, TASS reports. The three states confirmed their commitment to the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of Syria. They also condemned Washington’s decision to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights. It constitutes “a grave violation of international law, particularly the UN Security Council resolution 497, and threatens peace and security in the Middle East,” the statement said.
